Watch: ‘Doctor Who’ Season 8 Teaser Hints at Davros’ Return

Could Davros be returning to “Doctor Who”?

A new teaser for the upcoming eighth season features a familiar voice that sounds eerily like it belongs to the founder of the Dalek Empire. Davros was last seen facing off against the 10th Doctor in “The End of Time.”

The clip shows the Tardis exploding (what else is new?) and electricity surging through Peter Capaldi’s new doctor, causing his two hearts to beat a mile a minute.

Whomever the villain — perhaps another Dalek leader — he claims to be able to be omnipotent. “I see into your soul, Doctor. I see beauty, divinity, hatred,” the voice says menacingly.

“Doctor Who” returns to BBC One and BBC America on August 23.

    It’s kinda funny how people still don’t recognize Nicholas Briggs’ voice even though it’s been used (some might say overused) in DW constantly since the first new series Dalek episode. It’s not Davros.

  2. Davros didn’t found the Dalek Empire, either. He was only responsible for creating the Daleks.

  3. Davros was last seen facing the 10th Doctor in Journey’s End. Please get your facts right

    Reblogged this on Cari's Choices and commented:
    The Man is still an avid fan of the 70’s & 80’s Doctor Who series, though we’re both enjoying the later seasons…so this is rather interesting. Wondering when it’ll be here in Australia…and who the new villain is!

    Incorrect. Davros was not in “The End of Time”. Davros faced off against the Tenth Doctor in “Journey’s End”.
